Tired 

On days like this, I have not a drop of creative juice flowing throw my  veins.  But commitment requires me to. I have promised myself and my fictional audience, that I will churn out an article a day.  I think that’s how any good thing in life works.  There is no everlasting high for a particular person or thing or movement or business; your emotions have to be supported by

Shame! Shame!

There are memories that never should be revisited.  For some people, it’s memories of discomfort; of the days when they were not so comfortable enough to provide for themselves or their families, the kind of life they would have loved.   My friend, James is like this. He would automatically excuse himself from any conversation where it is being reminisced that he was once ‘poor’. He has made it now and

Not A Review: B.O.A.T

Novel: Born on a Tuesday Author: Elnathan John So I have been stalking Elnathan John since I was a little girl.

Just. Journaling 

I flopped this month. I had promised myself to interview one person per day every day of this month but from the beginning it’s been a war. All my dreams of being a super interviewer in life crashed before my eyes as I realized that my people skills were zero, I lacked the requisite patience to produce successful and interesting interviews, and I was terrible with time management in my

Adeboro, My Friend

Prompt: Feb 12 All about you! Explain why you chose your blog’s title and what it means to you.  Haha. This is not even weird.  Yes, maybe I could have been more creative with my blog title, but I chose my blog title ‘Adeboro’ because my name is Adeboro and it is my blog.  What it means to me? On the surface of it, Adeboro means ‘royalty and wealth meet’

Tooting My Horn

Prompt: Jan 16 Toot Your Horn Most of us are excellent at being self-deprecating, and are not so good at the opposite. Tell us your favourite thing about yourself.     CAUTION: This is not fiction.   My name is Adeboro and I am growing.   I have sat to think deeply about this prompt. I have looked at myself, from my physical appearance, to the my complex-simple mind, to
